TheFarmFamily.com - There is a new site in town
We like so many things over here, so we decided to start a website where we could share all the things that we think are great. On it there will be a lot of exclusive behind the scenes photos and videos from our own bands as well as other bands we think rule. It will feature content we create on the road and at The Farm Family location. as well as content sent in from the artists we admire. So no, this site is not just about music, it’s about all kinds of art. So join in, it is still a work in progress… but you gotta start somewhere…
Check it all out and share the stories you dig.

Terrorizer Interview: Boris
With their new album ‘Noise’, Japanese doom mavericks Boris have managed to combine the melodic, poppy approach of their recent work with the crushing weight of their earlier, heavier material. Jonathan Dick caught up with the band to find out how they did it, and caught a fascinating glimpse into the trio’s creative process…
The fact that Boris take their name from a Melvins song has proved itself to be a more than appropriate connection between two bands whose sound has become as well known for being unpredictable and difficult to categorize as it has for being influential to a number of artists and bands from an incredibly wide range of styles. In their twenty-two years of existence as a band, the Boris sound has mutated from the band’s earliest days with experimental noise to the more pop balanced stylings of their recent releases. Though each of their nineteen releases, including this year’s excellent ‘Noise’, are inherently different from each other with the trio of Atsuo (drums/vocals), Wata (guitar/keyboards/vocals), and Takeshi (bass/guitar/lead vocals) as resistant as ever to anything but change – the band’s central musical theme is still unwaveringly set on loud. It’s a commonality that finds the band again sharing the same aesthetic stage with their namesake who, for all their genre bending, will always be an immovable force in the realm of the loud and the heavy.
The Guardian premieres the full album stream of Adebisi Shank a week before release
Irish math rock outfit Adebisi Shank take a ‘say what you see’ approach to naming records: This Is The Third Album Of A Band Called Adebisi Shank follows sophomore effort This Is The Second Album Of A Band Called Adebisi Shank and debut - you guessed it - This Is The Album Of A Band Called Adebisi Shank.
If Adebisi Shank’s album naming methods are a little functional, sonically they are anything but: the band were inspired by a diverse spread of influences in creating TITTOABCAS, including ELO, Enya, Mike Oldfield, Pixar, Crash Bandicoot and Game of Thrones. The result is a retro-futurist brand of math that sounds as close to 80s soft rock and hair metal as it does to the tricksy likes of Battles and Don Caballero.
The album will be released worldwide on Sargent House on August 12th.
Chelsea Wolfe releases The Waves Have Come, Starts European Tour on July 25th
Earlier this year, Chelsea Wolfe shared an intense video for her Pain Is Beauty track "Feral Love", which was an excerpt from a 52-minute film called Lone. Wolfe co-wrote the film with director Mark Pellington, who did Pearl Jam’s iconic “Jeremy” video and clips for Michael Jackson, Nine Inch Nails, U2, and others, plus the films Arlington Road, The Mothman Prophecies, and more.
In a statement, Wolfe said of the video:
“Most of this video is footage from the first time Mark and I shot together—he had built this dark room full of green ivy and it was just me, the dress from the album cover, a few lights, and him. It was the first time I realized what a director really is. Suddenly he was shouting, guiding me with instructions, emotions, telling me to act as if everything I was singing about—disaster and the loss of life and love—that it was all inside of me and at the same time to act as an observer of these things. He cut it together with found footage of families, intense nature and destruction and created this cathartic journey through it all.”

Bandwagon Singapore Feature: Sonic Sanctuaries - At Home with Sargent House
With Russian Circles coming for the third time to our side of the dirt, we couldn’t help but notice the very firm relationship our own KittyWu Records have with Sargent House, the record label responsible behind so many brilliant music outfits, including the post-metal trio as well. With a little help from KittyWu and Incursive productions, we’ve had the pleasure of having our face melted and minds shattered watching Deafheaven, And So I Watch You From Afar live this year, not to mention catching the mighty Russian Circles twice, back in 2010 and 2012. In all the aforementioned gigs, the Sargent House artists have unquestionably and consistently proven that they’re among the finest in their respective genres, and put up helluva outstanding live shows while at it too.
So just how did Sargent House ascended to the echelons of worldwide prominence as one of the most successful independent labels around, representing all our favorite independent bands? The Sargent House origin story is an intriguing one, with one enterprising individual at the centre of it all: Cathy Pellow. Before a stint at Atlantic records as a freelance music video commissioner, she had formed her own music video production company Refused TV producing videos for the likes of Paramore, Fall Out Boy, Train and most notably Cee Lo Green’s “F*ck You” - and that’s where she formed relationships with the bands that would eventually make it into her label roster.
Now Spinning the podcast interview with Sargent House owner Cathy Pellow about why …

Pitchfork Album Review: Boris “Noise”
Shortly before the halfway point of “Angel”, the eighteen-minute centerpiece of Boris’ latest record, the band’s guitarist Wata chases after God. The instrument of her noble pursuit is an extravagant, elegiac solo: her axe weeps and wails like a professional mourner, eventually tearing the surrounding space asunder to allow everything—the dark and the light, the leaden and the featherweight—to rush in. It’s this sensation that’s earned the Japanese trio a seat at the pantheon of heaviness: this alchemy by which the act of listening to loud rock music is transformed into an encounter with the sublime.
